“My gut tells me right now as I look at it that Gingrich might actually be the stronger candidate, because I think he can make a broader connection than Mitt Romney to those Reagan Democrats,” Rudy Giuliani told CNN’s Piers Morgan in an interview last night.
“He’s got a common touch,” Giuliani said of Gingrich. “He’s able to talk to people, he comes from a poor family, understands poverty from that point of view. He doesn’t come from the American elite.”
Dick Cheney also talked about Gingrich last night, telling CNN, “I wouldn’t underestimate him.” Cheney, who entered Congress the same year as Gingrich, recalled how skeptical he and others were when Gingrich said the Republicans could become the House majority — but sixteen years later, they did.
